It’s not that FaceTime isn’t good, but it does limit who you can connect to with a video call.
Skype, even though it’s owned by Microsoft, has a lot more users, Mac and Windows. What if you want to record those Skype calls and save them as QuickTime movies? There’s an app for that.
The World Of Cleverly Named Apps
Personally, I prefer apps with descriptive names vs. apps with clever names. Call Recorder for Skype is descriptive, and that makes it clever and easy to remember.
What this clever little add on app does is let you record both audio and video from a Skype call with a single click of a big red button.
Click the button and Call Recorder begins recording both video and audio of your Skype call. Even better, it has built-in options for a side-by-side and split-screen mode so you get both sides of the video call.
All the files are saved as QuickTime movies so they’re easily dropped into iTunes or ready to upload to YouTube or simply save and share as valued memories.
As simple as Call Recorder is to use, there are plenty of geeky settings you can use to get the video call movie recorded exactly as you want.
Call Recorder also lets you convert the audio from a QuickTime movie with a drag and drop. Video is recorded using H.264 encoding, and audio is recorded as standard AAC encoding for complete compatibility with your Mac and iDevices.
The built-in audio recording level meters feature both input and output. The Call Recorder record button appears magically when you fire up Skype on your Mac.
And, all the configuration settings are built-in to Skype’s preferences.
So, think of the possibilities when you can record both sides of a video call in Skype.
Can you say Podcasts? Call Recorder makes that as easy as a click. The finished video can be imported into iMovie or other video apps for sweetening.
Or, simply use Call Recorder to record both sides of any Skype video call. That’s perfect for saving family memories or protecting yourself from predatory business associates or lawyers.
